Etymology & Historical Origin - Janiya

Janiyah, Janiya and Janiah are all modern American name inventions especially popular within (but not limited to) the African-American community. Made-up names have become more ubiquitous in the United States, and these Janiyah names are only a few examples. Female names ending with the “-iya(h)” suffix have become especially fashionable in certain circles (Aniyah, Amiyah, Jaliyah, Kaliyah, Maliyah, Samiyah, Saniyah, Taliyah, etc. etc.). When a name is made-up, it essentially has no linguistic root and therefore no meaning. Although one might argue that Janiah is an overly-embellished form of Jane, which is an English female equivalent to John (see the Jane page for more detail).

Popularity of the Name Janiya

Janiya is the second most preferred spelling after Janiyah. First appearing on the American female naming charts in 2000, Janiya has done remarkably well (especially during the mid to late 2000s). In more recent years, Janiya has seen drops in popularity. Then again, this fancy Jane name has a ton of competition when you consider all of the other "iya(h)" names from which to choose!
